Video review – VW Golf GTi Mk5 (2006)

The Mark 5 Golf GTi was a welcome return to what a Golf GTi should be like.  This particular one being reviewed here is 16 years old at date of review, so it’s interesting to see how it has stood up to the test of time.

See the review below and let me know what you think!
